This photo gallery has been setup to have a visual record and history of the blankets that are handed in to 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day.

Over 10,000 photographs have been captured as at March 2016!

To view YOUR blankets you are able to search by TAG NUMBER or MOBILE NUMBER (please use the format 27123456789 – country code is mandatory).

Please note the following:

  • Blankets need to be accompanied by a Blanket Handover Form to ensure that the correct information is received and that we can link you to your blanket. This will ensure you can search for your blankets in this Gallery. If this form is not received the blanket will be assigned to Anonymous.

  • In future KnitWits will receive notifications of the Tag Numbers assigned to your blankets. This is, however, dependent upon your data being correct in our CRM system.

  • KnitWits will also receive notifications of the Beneficiary Organisations that receive your blanket. This will only happen after distribution has taken place – normally during the autumn and winter months. This notification will include the Tag Number.

  • To enable this to happen we require the following information:

First Name

Last Name

Email address

Mobile Number (it must be your own UNIQUE number)

Suburb and City where you live


If you are unsure whether we have your details or not, please send an email to and include the information listed above.


Thank you to each and every one of you who have contributed to 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day. Due to your support and commitment to this cause, the Knitting Revolution for Madiba is flourishing!
